Syngenta AG will require U.S. farmers who plant a new and controversial type of genetically modified corn this spring to pledge in writing not to ship it China or the European Union, a trade association said on Friday.
AgBiTech achieved U.S. Environmental Protection Agency approval for a new biological insect control to help U.S. row-crop farmers “redefine caterpillar management” in major crops.
From visiting with retailers the past month, a University of Tennesee weed specialist says it is very apparent there will be a major shortage of dicamba for burndown again this spring.

$4.75 corn in 2014? USDA thinks so (12/10/13)
Morning Comments 03/11
Corn still seems to be suffering from the WASDE report. Although Monday’s USDA report seemed supportive of U.S. corn prices, it also boosted the global carryout forecast significantly. That development, along with the negative bean data, weighed upon CBOT futures yesterday and again last night. May corn slipped 1.0 cent to $4.7725/bushel Monday night, while December sagged 1.0 to $4.77.
